luck be a lady

when debra came to me for custom invitations, for her casino night themed 30th birthday party, i could hardly contain my excitement. i always love the opportunity to design for a themed party and since i hadn’t done a casino night before, the ideas started running like crazy in my head.

here is what i came up with…

i hope these invitations make all of debra’s guests smile and cry tears of joy, just like the birthday girl did the first time i showed her this design.

    My Dad is turning 50 and my sisters and I are throwing him a surprise casino themed party and I would love to use this idea for the invitations! Did you just print them on cardstock and then use real cards for the ones where we see the back?

    How did you print these? did you design them and out source the printing or print them yourself?

      Yes, I designed these invitations and printed both the front and back side on my printer and hand assembled each one.
